Darko takes you higher.
The Neasden-based producer has honed a sound which is high on melody and high on emotion in recent years, combining rap and grime drum palettes with the breathless rush you get from R&B, trance and Dark0’s beloved JRPG soundtracks (look closely at last year’s Fate EP and there’s clear nods to Final Fantasy VII, Chrono Cross and more.) As well as releasing his own material, he also played a key role in MC K9’s excellent Mad in the Cut mixtape, A&Ring the record and producing several of its standout tracks.
Dark0 describes his FACT mix as “a piece that tried to illustrate my mind; the way it constantly recreates the songs that stick, my inner monologue and thoughts. All these things that pass through my head. I thought it would be fun to present this like an internal radio station.” So don’t expect one BPM or seamless blends – this is a mix that’s happy to switch from one style to another with no warning, whether that’s a run of high-drama Dark0 productions, film samples, new material from associates like Mssingno, Evian Christ, K9 and Kamixlo, or a Filter Dread remix of ‘House Every Weekend’. It climaxes with a Dark0 remix of Justin Bieber’s ‘What Do You Mean’, and let’s face it, if you’re not down with that then it’s not your time to glo.
